Trade Book Rewrite
A trade publisiher asked me to copy edit a book on running a catering business. Once I got into it, I found text from early chapters duplicated later in the book and other content issues. I alerted the publisher; they gave me the green light to reorganize and rewrite the contents as needed, working directly with the author. He was so happy with my work he thanked me in his Acknowledgments. (You have to click on "Copyright" in the left-hand panel to access the Acknowledgments page in the link provided.)
